We were curious how major Canadian brands were fairing when it came to cybersquatting, so we took a look at how well protected they are in the domain name space. We specifically took a look to see whether their customers are facing navigation challenges or security threats online as a result of the domain names these brands don’t own.
Here at FairWinds, we receive dozens of requests a month to anonymously acquire domains. Most of these requests come from our pre-existing clients, who are, in the main, multibillion-dollar public and private enterprises. However, we have steadily been performing more work for pre-launch startups, smaller up-and-coming companies, and “unicorns,” or new ventures worth over $1 billion.
With the New Year upon us, we at FairWinds and CADNA are excited to see the many opportunities that technology will bring to businesses like yours during the course of 2017; but, at the same time, we—as you too must be—are concerned about recent incidences of criminal hacking and cybercrime, both state-sponsored and non-state, that are being reported with increasing frequency in world news.
